Robbie Ray allowed five runs -- two earned -- over 2 1/3 innings Thursday in his first rehab start with High-A Visalia.
Ray was victimized by some shaky Class A defense, but the results were uninspiring nonetheless. He sat 91-93 mph with his fastball, per beat writer Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. That's a pitch that typically sits 93-95 mph when he's right. Ray, who's been out since April 30 with a strained oblique, figures to make at least two more starts on the farm. Jun 15 - 8:20 AM

Robbie Ray (oblique) is on track to begin a rehab assignment with High-A Visalia on Thursday.

Ray threw another bullpen session Monday and if he recovers from it with no issues he'll be cleared for rehab games. Considering the left-hander has missed the last six weeks of action, he will need multiple rehab starts before rejoining the Diamondbacks' rotation.

Robbie Ray (oblique) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session Monday.

He'll throw another bullpen session Wednesday and could then be cleared to face hitters. Ray has already missed five weeks of action with a strained right oblique, so he's going to need multiple rehab starts before rejoining the Diamondbacks' rotation.
Jun 4 - 11:05 PM

Robbie Ray (oblique) threw a bullpen session on Tuesday afternoon at Chase Field.

Ray went for a follow-up MRI on his strained right oblique Tuesday morning and the scan apparently showed significant healing. He still has many hurdles to clear, but it's feasible to think that Ray could rejoin the Diamondbacks' starting rotation sometime around mid-June. The 26-year-old left-hander had a 4.88 ERA and 45/17 K/BB ratio through his first 27 2/3 innings (six starts) this season with Arizona.

Robbie Ray (oblique) will go for a follow-up MRI on Tuesday.

Doctors just want to get a sense of his progress from a Grade 2 strain of his right oblique. We should have a better idea of an exact timetable after the MRI results come back.
May 28 - 2:47 PM

Robbie Ray (oblique) threw from a distance of 90 feet on Monday.

Ray told Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo that he felt "very good." The southpaw went down with a Grade 2 strain of his right oblique at the end of April. He's beginning to make some progress, though he's likely to miss a few more weeks.
May 15 - 8:58 AM

Diamondbacks placed LHP Robbie Ray on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right oblique.

Ray suffered what has been diagnosed as a Grade 2 oblique strain during Sunday's start against the Nationals. There's been no timetable set for his return, but he'll undoubtedly miss at least a month of action and perhaps more than that. Braden Shipley, Kris Medlen and T.J. McFarland are options to replace Ray in the Arizona rotation.
Apr 30 - 6:34 PM

Robbie Ray (oblique) is scheduled for an MRI on Monday.

It's just a formality, as a trip to the disabled list is expected after Ray exited Sunday's start in the second inning with a strained right oblique. There's no firm timetable for his return just yet, but more details should be known soon. These injuries can be tricky, so it could be a few weeks.
Apr 30 - 9:28 AM

Robbie Ray departed Sunday's start against the Nationals in the second inning with a strained right oblique.

Ray had thrown just 21 pitches when he called out the training staff and walked off the field following a brief conversation. We should know more about the left-hander's status after the game, but it's certainly an injury that could -- and most likely will -- force him to the disabled list.
Apr 29 - 2:08 PM

Robbie Ray fanned 11 but came up short of a win after allowing three runs in 4 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Phillies.

Ray threw 107 pitches to get his 14 outs. He walked three and gave up five hits, though just one of them went for extra bases. Ray has allowed at least three hits in all five of his starts to date, which is why he's yet to last longer than six innings. He'll try for better against the Nationals on Sunday in Washington.
Apr 24 - 11:14 PM

Robbie Ray struck out nine batters and allowed two runs in six innings against the Giants on Wednesday.

He served up a two-run homer by Evan Longoria in his sixth and final inning of work but that was the extent of the damage. The game wasn't decided until the 10th inning so Ray did not factor into the decision. He has struggled with the walk this year and issued three more today. The left-hander has a 2-0 record with a 4.98 ERA after four starts. He has an amazing 32 strikeouts and 14 walks in 21 2/3 innings.
Apr 19 - 1:32 AM

Robbie Ray was able to fan six Giants on Wednesday, but couldn't go more than 4 2/3 innings in a no decision.

Ray walked three, which gives him eight walks over his last two starts. He also allowed five hits and three earned runs to go along with the aforementioned strikeouts. Ray has swing-and-miss stuff, but there are going to be starts like this because the command is mediocre, at best. He'll try and rebound from this so-so effort when he faces the Giants again next Wednesday.
Apr 11 - 7:00 PM

Robbie Ray struck out nine over six innings of one-run ball in a 3-1 win over the Cardinals on Thursday.

Ray did walk five, but he yielded just two hits en route to his second win of the year. It was a much better showing than he had in his first start of the year, when he allowed six earned runs against the Rockies. He's now got 17 strikeouts in 11 innings, not surprising after he's struck out 218 in each of the last two seasons. Ray will look to continue to round into form Wednesday when he faces the Giants.
Apr 5 - 11:44 PM

Robbie Ray notched a win despite being knocked around for seven runs — six earned — over five innings against the Rockies.

Not the sort of season debut fantasy owners had in mind, but at least they got the win. Ray surrendered seven hits, including three home runs. He struck out eight and walked three. The southpaw squandered an early lead, but he was fortunate enough to receive generous support from his offense. He’ll look to improve in his next outing against the Cardinals in St. Louis.
Mar 31 - 2:02 AM

Robbie Ray couldn't throw strikes against the Angels on Tuesday, walking five in 2 1/3 innings in his Cactus League start.

Ray gave up just two hits and struck out four, but he was all over the map in his outing. He's now walked 10 hitters in under 13 innings in the Cactus League, and he's walked 71 batters in each of his last two seasons. That's not abhorrent, but improved command could make him one of the best left-handed pitchers in baseball. As is, he's still worth early consideration because of his ability to miss bats.
